    I've had an oak fork laying around for months and finally decided to do something with it. This beauty of a natural was the end result! I wanted a little bit rougher finish on it so I only sanded it to 220, and finished it with a couple coats of BLO. 90mm wide and banded with .5 100% Slingshot with a 20-12 taper. It's a shooter!

      Looks great Josh, that a white Oak grain is def different than Red Oak, but just recognizable in its own right as well. [emoji1690][emoji16]

      I've got a few smaller red oak forks I'll be working on soon! Got some of that oak stabilized and ready for use in a build. The grain is insane!
